Hello everyone :)


Here we are, yet again after another assignment. I certainly feel drained and sense there is a similar sentiment over here, in this group.

It maybe just me who feels drained. It in fact maybe relief that we have completed three quarters of this part of the journey.

Just wanted to share my relief with you all, having completed the task.

AND wanted to share my "invisible father" with you, in the hope of improving someone's life decision by sharing my lived experience. It never is a happy feeling to feel incomplete.

Looking forward to the next task. And wishing you, the lovely people in this group, a blessed time.

Salaam (peace be to you and to me)

It's true this has been really a draining task, more so with me, I have to use my phone and have realised that I am not the only one who does, what with copying and pasting on word count. I had to do that four times to get the exact words, am not 100% sure if was exact, but I hope so.

Definitely looking forward to the next task.

Cheers, God bless you too.

It's been a very demanding week for me and I share your feelings Aminah. Phew! I am very relieved to have been able to make my submission too.

Looking out to listen to your unique voice in the new week.

Best wishes from Greengirl.

I can't really say am drained, because I realized a long time ago, that I thrive best under pressure.
Even so, am wishing you and all the other sisters in this forum the very best in the final part of the VOF!

Demanding but rewarding as well

thank you Aminah. It is really demanding work, and sometimes quite emotional when you relive experiences and read other experiences as well that are so challenging. But the writing and articles are also so rewarding in knowing that the inpirational women from all corners of the world persevere.

thank you so much.
